I know MtGox doesn't allow for such transfers to prevent money laundering. Which exchanges allow for anyone to fund your account with a bank transfer (USD preferable).

Why is this question tagged with "money laundering" ? – BitcoinMedia Mar 5 '13 at 23:18
@BitcoinMedia because it deals with practices that can be seen as money laundering? – ThePiachu Mar 6 '13 at 5:40

In the U.S. there is the ACH bank network.

Coinbase is currently the only service allowing bitcoin purchases to be paid for with a transfer from a bank using the ACH network directly.

Mt. Gox and Camp BX use Dwolla which is an intermediary which allows funds to be drawn from a bank account through the ACH network.

I'm unaware of any exchanges whose policy is that it will accept a domestic or international bank wire without that coming from your own account.
